I Am

I Am

A Poem by rhythm&blues
"

written for Lori Carlson's contest

"
I am thoughtful and conscientious  
I wonder why people can't be kind
I hear fireflies humming
want for each day to be a gift
I am thoughtful and conscientious 

I pretend that my life is perfect
I feel everyone sees through me
I touch the stars in hopes of salvation
I worry it'll never happen
I cry for the loss of many
I am thoughtful and conscientious

I understand everyone does not have the same beliefs
I say that love will save the day
I dream for the day all men are equal
I try to act accordingly
I hope this day is possible
I am thoughtful and conscientious

Lovely poem. Thanks for sharing.

You have written a great "about me" poem. You should post it there since you say it is hard to write something for that space on your profile.

You have penned raw power here. Free for anyone who will take it and put it into their own minds.
What a wonderful Christmas gift for the WC readers.

A beautiful glimpse into you. The line about touching the stars in hopes of salvation is absolutely stunning.

Our inner emotional worlds aren't seen by the masses. You do a fabulous job of showing the struggle and angst that so many of us harbor. An inner world in turmoil is something I understand.

I really don't know what to say on these 'about me' pages. I'm newly divorced, have recently found poetry and loving every minute of it. I'm a bit on the shy side until you get to know me. My best .. more..
